TAYLOR, MAURICE, APPIN, SANDERS

Hi John
Thanks for the reply Agnes was my grandmother my father was Barrington Walter Taylor born 22nd September 1908 he was a well known musician in Campbelltown Margaret remembered him playing the panio and I have found mention of the family in Chronicles of Appin NSW by Sid Percival and Appin The Story of a Macquarie Town by Anne-Maree Whitaker I have a fair bit of inforation on the Taylors if you are interested I now live in Perth WA so doing family tree sometimes gets a bit frustrationg. Its loverly to catch up with family in 2006 we went to Elladale and were lucky enough to have a tour of the house which has been restored.
Yours Jan

Hi Jan,
Appreciate the email, very nice to hear from you. I know Stuart street very well, I have going there since I was born  and that was in 1953. Aunty Liela was my dad’s 1st cousin. My grandmother was Effie Hunt nee Kitching, Aunty Dot’s older sister. Sarah passed away in 1946, she saw my sister (Larraine) when my sister was less than a month old. I remember my Greatgrand father Robert (Sarah’s husband)as Dar Kitching, I was about 6 when he died. I have many fond memories of Stuart Street visiting the Riley’s and Perry’s over many years. Not sure if you know that Aunty Liela passed away recently, about 4-6 weeks ago. My sister and I went to the funeral at St Peter’s in Campbelltown and caught up with our cousin Margaret and Aunty Liela’s brother Peter, who came up from Adelaide. My sister has visited the Sanders home town of Kinchela and we have been researching it for some time now. We believe Sarah left Kinchela and came down to Appin and possibly lived with Agnes Taylor her sister, as you said I believe they were very close. It was along time ago early to mid 1890′s as my grandmother Effie was born in 1895.So Agnes is your grandmother or greatgrand mother ? Anyway enough from me, if you know anymore about the Sanders please feel to pass it on, I would appreciate that very much. GreatGreatGrandfather Sanders sure has a large extended family now :)
Kind regards
John Hunt

Hi John
I have been in contact with Leila Riley and Margaret Perry they still live in the Kitching home in Campbelltown
Lila Rileys mother was Dorothy Kitching and she was 93 at the time
My grandmother was Agnes Jane Taylor nee Sanders who lived in Appin and was friendly with her sister Sarah
The address in Campbelltown is 11 Stuart Street Campbelltown nd I think the ladies were in contact with the Campbelltown Historical Society.
Would like to hear from you
Jan Maurice nee Taylor.

Hi, thank you for this info
My Great Grandmother was one of the 11 children, she was Sarah Ellen Kitching (Sanders) of Narellan
Do you know where I could find out more about the Sanders of Kinchela ?
Would appreciate any help you could provide

OBITUARY : SARAH ELLEN KITCHING

FROM JAN AND BARRY MAURICE

SARAH ELLEN KITCHING.

 

SHORTLY after noon last Saturday Mrs Sarah Ellen Kitching wife of Robert Kitching,collapsed at her home 13 ? Street, Campbelltown and passed away  shortly afterwards.  The late Mrs Kitching who was 74 years of age although only recently having medical treatment was apparently quite well and in good health when her husband left home to do their ordinary Saturday morning shopping and it was while he was away  that the collapse of his wife took place. Before he could get home after receiving word of his wife’s illness she has passed peacefully away.

To those of us who knew the late Mrs Kitching, knew only a woman of very stirling quality one who ever expressed a sweet and charming personality with tender motherly love. We join our readers in expressing to Mr Robert Kitching and his family our deep and sincere sympathy.  The loss to the Kitching family  is a broken link of a glorious chain which can never be rejoined.

The deceased lady was Miss SARAH ELLEN SANDERS before her marriage to her bereaved husband  which took place in Sydney just fifty years ago , the wedding ceremony being performed by the late Rev Bolger who at that time in 1896 was the first Congregational Minister in Campbelltown. In the same year of their union Mr and Mrs Robert Kitching took up residence in N ? where they resided until thirteen years ago when the old couple came to live in Campbelltown.  Of the issue there were ? son and two daughters , (1) Mr Kitching of Auburn, Effie Hunt ( also of Auburn) and ? ? of Campbelltown. As a grandmother Mrs Kitching leaves 13 grandchildren. Mrs Taylor late of Appin and now of Campbelltown is her sister and THE ONLY SURVIVING MEMBER OF THE SANDERS FAMILY.

The internment of the mortal remains were placed to rest in God’s Sacr ?????? adjoining St Peters Church of England  last Monday morning following a short service in the church
